AbstractThis paper seeks to show that random plurality leads to chaos spread and here, exactly, lies the significance of moderation as a middle state necessary to achieve societal security. The paper deals with this idea on the level of the explosive spread of political parties that appeared in Egypt in the wake of January 25th, 2011. This led to uncontrolled chaos in the Egyptian political life and consequently affected social situation directly. But when June 30th, 2013 restored control to Egyptian scene balance was soon restored to political life especially in partisan practices. Yet, there remain a need to renew political discourse to cope with the requirements of the masses and social changes.The paper aims to explore the extent of political moderation after June 30th, 2013 against the background of the spread of partisan chaos culture in the wake of January 25th, 2011. The paper adopts the analytical method in its treatment of available data and experts' views. The paper draws on the periods before and after June 30th, 2013 as a model of study.The most important findings of the paper are:•The formation of parties after June 25th is chaotic in nature as some of these parties lacked the legislative cover and constructive goals.•In view of the spread of the culture of chaos consequential to multiparty after June 30th parties achieved a sort of relative moderation. •Political parties made important progress towards social security in cooperation with state institutions after June 30th.The paper recommends a renovation of the political and cultural discourse of the parties to meet the societal requirements. Finally, the paper suggests a theoretical approach to political moderation under the name of "preparation and activation" which comprises formal moderation "preparation" and applied moderation "activation."
